Postby FabioRubato; Mon Feb 15, 2016 7:57 pm Walkthrough for using Cream in Sonar Platinum Please

Hi, I've been trying to set Cream up in Sonar without success. In your manual you state videos will be provided for working with the major hosts. I am unable to find any specifically related to using Cream in Sonar. Any links? If not, can you provide a clear walkthrough to assist me in getting Cream correctly configured in Sonar Platinum?

Thanks

Anyone? Does Kirnu moderate this at all? :x

Sorry I missed your post. If you have urgent issues you should contact us via email support at kirnuarp dot com.

I'm sure Cream will work similarly to any MIDI plugin in Sonar. Can you specify what your problem actually is?
You can't route MIDI notes to Cream or you can't route Cream MIDI output to synth instrument? Or something else?

Hello, thanks for getting back. I did submit a query to the email support you mentioned but no-one has responded.

Okay, today I opened a midi instrument in Sonar - Hybrid 2 - and as simple instrument. Recorded some midi. I then opened Cream as a simple instrument track. Now from what I gather, you're supposed to feed midi into cream. So I select the 'out' from H2, but there is no out to Cream...only buses and master etc. So I try a 'send' from the track and again no apparent way to route to Cream from there. Same as in Cream, trying to select an 'in' from H2, it doesn't exist. So trying to set it up this way doesn't work in Sonar...at least for me.

Opening up H2 as a midi source. 'In' is Omni, 'out' is to cream. That seems to get midi in to Cream...just no sounds. Okay, Cream 'in' is set to none, Cream 'out', options seems to be various midi tracks I have but no master. Sending it back to H2 does not work. Very confusing.

So as requested, how do I do this in Sonar? Thank you.

I got the setup working when I created two soft synth tracks. One For Cream and One for the vsti.
Then I created some MIDI notes to track 1 which MIDI out is set to Cream channel 1.
Then I set the vst1 track MIDI input to Cream Channel 1 and set the input echo on.

I hope this helped :)

I'm struggling to get Cream to accept any midi input too. Arto, could you break the process down further? I'm working in X3 if the steps are slightly different...

Are the two tracks Simple Instrument Tracks or MIDI Source?

By track 1, do you mean the Cream track?

I feel like I've tried every possible variation of routing and track type, but I'm getting nowhere.

FYI - It can work with Sonar. I have a template with Cream first taking the MIDI input (from the onscreen piano keyboard as a virtual controller or whatever), and that track has None as the output, then my synth track will take as input whatever Cream itself has set as the midi output channel (for Channel 5 output from Cream the synth track shows its input as Cream 1: Midi Channel 5, for example).

Important - the Midi input track (in my case the Cream track 1) must be the active track. If other tracks are selected I lose the midi input into the beginning of the signal chain and so the sound is lost. I also lose sound if I don't have the Cream output matched with the synth channel input (I have a bunch of synths loaded to try out different things).

(I have another Sonar template that takes the Midi into Cthulhu, from Cthulhu into Cream, then to the synth, so that can be done, too.)

Thanks, that's reassuring. I'm still haven't quite managed to get this going, but it's good to know it can be done. :)
